How do you feel about this weight? Would you try to lighten the rifle? Two things I could do; 1. get another scope. The current scope I have is 15 oz. 2., Go with a sythetic stock. Current stock is wood and just over 2 lbs. I would need to go with a fairly expensive $400 price range stock to get appreciable weight savings. With a 7.5 lb rifle that shoots well (and metal is coated) would you keep as is or lighter up.
